The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzu’s dictum: "Those who know do not say; Those who say do not know".

When the master entered, they asked him what the words meant.

Said the master, "Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?"
All of them indicated that they knew.

Then he said, "put it into words."
All of them were silent.

(Anthony de Mello)

Are we aware of the limits of words?.......
